Gay & Lesbian Tourism Conference - Los Angeles - March 2004
The 5th International Conference on Gay & Lesbian Tourism will
open on March 22, 2004 to a capacity audience. Why? Because in an otherwise sluggish, tentative--even shrinking--travel industry,
gay and lesbian vacationers have not slowed down at all. In fact, in an online survey of 510 gay and lesbian travelers, taken
October 1-15, 2001 (i.e. post-9/11), respondents indicated they'd be taking as many vacations in the coming 12 months as in
the past 12. For 66% of them, that means three or more vacations per year. In fact 63% indicated no decrease of travel spending
and 28% indicated they will actually increase their vacation budget over the coming year.
